Hughson's City Council meeting Monday night stopped before it started.
Only two council members showed up; at least three -- a majority of the council -- must be present for a meeting to take place.
Mayor Ramon Bawanan and Councilman Matt Beekman showed up; Councilmen Thom Crowder and Doug Humphreys didn't attend.
Ben Manley's resignation last week left the council with only four members.
Bawanan asked the city clerk to contact the council members about a potential meeting next week.
"We still need to pay the bills," he said.
